The Gate of Famagusta
Famagusta Gate led to the most important port of Cyprus, Famagusta. With a truly stunning façade, including an arched structure and an impressive 11-meter diameter dome, it attracts the attention of all visitors.
A building of the 18th century, it is an excellent example of the architecture of that time. A monument that is inextricably linked to modern Cypriot history. Right next to it is the new Archdiocese with the archbishop's residence, the Byzantine Museum and the Library.
Walk in Troodos
The verdant slopes of Troodos Mountain range hide small villages with traditional cafes, cobbled streets and small churches. One of them is Fikardou, where its houses date back to the 18th century and are typical examples of local architecture.
These old walls surrounded the city in the 16th century. They are made of a combination of structural stones and bricks, while there is also a huge 80-meters wide moat. Today, some parts are preserved in various neighborhoods of the city.
It was originally built as a Catholic Gothic Cathedral of Hagia Sophia, an important example of Gothic architecture in Cyprus. After the conquest of Cyprus by the Ottomans in 1571, the church was converted into a mosque.
